No BM for 3 days. Took 2 before bed, had complete and satisfying BM the next morning. Joy! Drink lots of water and coffee the next morning to prompt some action. No more cramping than with the usual feelings when backed up.

It works but the cramps are NOT worth it. Couldn’t sleep and all during the night after taking it because of the pain. Still couldn’t go to the bathroom until after 12 hours after taking it

I have tried almost every laxative. I decided to try this. I woke up in violent stomach cramps. The worse you could imagine. You can literally feel this product tearing through your intestines. I have never experienced that with any other..However, its because it is so strong. It will empty your bowls but be prepared for stomach cramps. I basically agree with every other review on here..No one was exaggerating. Overall, I would recommend.

I had taken this medication a long time ago and it was an awful experience but I tried it again tonight and the same AWFUL experience. I had stomach cramps that felt like contractions and nausea. I will NEVER do this to myself again no matter how backed up I am.

So, as a regular "go-er" I was experiencing constipation for the first time in my life. I'd admit, I had no intake of fruits for a couple of days. Anywho, I purchased these and popped 2 at 5:30 pm yesterday, and thus morning at 3am, lo and behold I'm going!! Stomach cramps was a major pain├░??© but it felt awesome knowing that they were working on my behalf. I feel so lighter now! And HAPPY├░???!! So glad I invested in these! Oh and they were max strength. I felt I needed something strong because when I had the urge to go,(during constipation period) I felt my stomach drop but no bowel moment. This laxative made me believe I had angels watching over me lol

I've been having a hard time going to the bathroom since november. I'll go one or twice a week. I started taking Senokot but that worked, occasionally. I started taking this and it is the best thing that ever happened to me. Highly recommended.

I have always have problems with relieving my bowels. I literally did not use the the bathroom for two weeks at a time. My doctor ran all kinds of tests including a colonoscopy, according to him there was nothing wrong. I have tried every laxative in the book and nothing worked without making me feel like i was dying. I found Ex lax Maximum...and Hallelujah. Having a bowel movement have never felt so good. I take pill every other night. One pill works your body for about two days. The best thing is I just go to bathroom like normal, no cramps or all the extra stuff. Just remember these pills are strong. 1 every other day should work just fine.

Who In their right mind would EVER voluntarily take this poison??? It is the most useless painful sh*t I've ever consumed. The cramping is horrific. And no movements. Just false alarms for HOURS!! This should be banned - throwing entire box away and will warn anyone about this crap

I started taking because I constantly had a crampy, gassy, bloated feeling despite watching what I ate. My bowel movements also became small and difficult to pass after I began taking a certain antidepressant. This stuff is a miracle. But beware of the cramps. The first time I took it, I was in and out of the restroom for hours, sweating and cramping. The side-effects are easier to deal with now that I've adjusted to it. I use it in moderation.

Comment from: Truth be told 19-24 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: April 21

I felt like the bowel movements I was having were not proportional to the amount of food that I ate, and that they were quite irregular at that, I always felt full and bloated. So I took ex lax maximum strength. And let me tell you THIS WORKS! Took it at 9pm yesterday, it is 8:40 am and I'm literally destroying the toilet right now.

Using this drug I took the recommended dose and went to bed. I woke up with excruciating stomach pain and after crawling around trying to relieve it I decided to try and go to the washroom. I sat until my legs were asleep and my body still wouldn't pass anything! I tried to go back to bed and relax only the pain became worse. When I finally thought I was dying I had the urge to go. 3 hours later I am still going...

I was taking Oxycodone for a surgery I had gotten, and the needs caused me to be very constipated. I haven't had a BM in over 4 days. I drank half a gallon of prune juice earlier in the day even, and to no avail. Nothing seemed to be working. The pain in my stomach was so intense I had my boyfriend go get me laxatives. Within 10 minutes of taking two capsules, my stomach started rumbling and finally the relief I needed. I WOULD NOT use if you have a fancy dinner, wedding, or event to go to that day. You WILL ruin your outfit if you do not make it to the bathroom in .025 seconds of the tummy rumble. Good luck and happy pooping.

Easy use pop it when you want to go. Although, I took two recommended on the label. 3 hours later little gas here & there. Nothing pulling in. Said what the hell took another 5 hours in after the first two...u fortunately same result just gas. Had a bit of cramps but I would've dealt had it made me go but the cramps were pointless. Won't take again and this was maximum strength.

I took Ex Lax Maximum Strength after I decided that it was quite abnormal that my last significant bowel movement was a month ago. I took 4 pills at 6:00 am before work. I later realized that this was a terrible idea. About 6 hours later, around noon. I suddenly felt a terrible urge and locked myself in the bathroom. What followed was a violent expulsion of god knows what. It was extremely effective, but not satisfying. AT ALL
